The docket is just the court calendar.

If your case is assigned to a pre-trial docket, all the cases on the calendar are there for pre trial matters, such as plea negotiations, discovery, motions and such. If your case is assigned to a trial calendar, there's a real possibility that your case could go forward with trial.

I was just surprised my son has a brain tumor he had a competency hearing less than a month ago and she told him that would delay things about 90 days. I assume now he's not incompetent haven't called his lawyer yet
Expert:  Zoey_ JD replied 1 year ago.

Maybe, maybe not. The case could be on the pretrial calendar simply for the judge to be updated on the status of your son's health. His lawyer would know for sure.
